through prolonged power outages have been greatly diminished. when hurricane sandy struck, we saw the results of the work we had done together. while we can never entirely prevent damage or power outages, the response was, in fact, better and faster. once again, we saw a problem and, together, worked to address it. [applause] if these past two years have proven anything, it is that we have the ability to rally around a common good and a common goal. certainly have done it in a way that just does not seem possible these days in some places, certainly not washington, d.c. leadership from each side of the caucus was meeting with my team for long hours, night after night, to develop a mitigation plan. our national budget was being driven to and then off of a fiscal cliff. while we were to manage our state's finances, national inaction hangs like a dark cloud over our state budget. for the many connecticut families with someone working in our defense industry, washington's and ability to address problems on a reasonable deadline is causing sleepless nights and it is unnecessary. earlie
, if you look at the firemen who were killed just before christmas, just on christmas, if you look at sandy hook, all of them involve these ar-15 style, military-style assault rifles. it's all the same thing. and the reason they like them is that they can put these magazines on them and they can unload 100 bullets in a minute. they're machine guns. >> absolutely. but the big problem in america is not these massacres. it's the day-in, day-out shootings that kill more than 11,000 americans a year. and of those, a few hundred are committed with rifles. so if the only thing that legislators do is reinstitute the assault weapons ban and the high magazine, that will be great. that will be a step forward. >> but it won't be enough. >> it won't be nearly enough. we have to make a move on handguns as well. >> but doesn't it send the right signal that actually it's time to do something? the reaction to every outrage since i've been in america has been nothing. gabby giffords, a congresswoman, can be shot in the head, nothing happens. a temple can be shot up, a movie theater, now a school. we've seen

and the events in sandy hook was overwhelming. it was a slaughter of the innocence. the crucial turning point of what ought to be a dialogue in three areas and the assault weapons and the high capacity magazine clips should be what we will do about mental health care services for people in this nation. i applaud the vice president and the commission. it appears to be far reaching in scope and my hope is what they will recommend is that we do ban assault weapons and the high capacity clips and we take a look at the mental health services in our schools and professionals and providing greater access to mental health services. to take a look at the loopholes and also we ought to begin. i don't have specifics, but we ought to begin about what are the culturings that glorifies violence. >> he said it doesn't have to be all or nothing and we would rather do something than nothing. we have advocates who point to the same issues with violence and movies and the television industry and the video games. all of those are warranted of our attention and doesn't need to be all or nothing. that seems to be
since the sandy hook shootings, and said for the first time since then, the connecticut legislature was back in session. governor dan malloy made on emotional plea to lawmakers some of them from newtown itself a plea to take action in memory of the victims. >> and yet in the midst of one of the worst days in our history, we also saw the best of our state. teachers and a therapist that sacrificed their live pros texting students. a principal and school psychologist that ran into harm's way. our brave connecticut state troopers, newtown's local law enforcement and firemen and others that responded courageously when called upon. sorry. >> jennifer: it's okay. it's heart breaking. but it also offers some hope that connecticut will move forward on gun control legislation whether or not washington does. and it's not just connecticut. in new york governor andrew cuomo also called for strengthening gun laws including ban on assault weapons. >> we are proposing today common sense measured. and i say to you forget the extremists. it's simple. no one hunts with an assault r
